Scott Zurevinski heading to AHL

Scott Zurevinski, captain at Quinnipiac the past two seasons, is expected to fly to St. John's (Newfoundland) Friday to sign an ATO with the American League Hockey team there. St. John's is affiliated with the Winnipeg Jets. A source close to the situation said it's not a done deal yet, but indicated Zurevinski is expected to sign later today.

At Quinnipiac, Zurevinski played in 155 games and scored 92 points. His offensive production trailed off the past two seasons after scoring 30 points as a sophomore, garnering an NHL contract offer from Vancouver which he turned down to return to school. But at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds, he has the physical presence and skill set to succeed as a pro.

And, if all goes according to plan, Zurevinski could make his pro debut on Saturday against a Manchester team that just signed Yale's captain Brian O'Neill, expected to make his debut on Friday against St. John's.
